Farmville Emerald Valley Tin Man Fountain Strategy Guide


As with the last several farms, Farmville Emerald Valley has it’s own self contained crafting building, the Tin Man Fountain. This feature is similar to Elite Horses and you will need to make all 15 animals within to BEAT EMERALD VALLEY  We have a strategy guide for you to make the feature a little less complex and help you to finish it faster. For the complete guide to the Tin Man Fountain  click here.  For a strategy guide to the rest of the beat Emerald Valley event click here.

First a look at how much storage you will need in your   Play Area(Crafted Item Storage) and  Home Pen (Ingredient Storage) to make each animal. 




The recommendations to comfortably make parts ahead take into account crafted ingredients needed to craft other ingredients for the current animal and leave a few left over spaces to store long term items that you are making for future animals. If you can expand further, it will be easier. (If you are crafting  expansion parts and have a stockpile of Super Fertilizer from the "Get 2" weekend, use it on the necessary crops to get your bushels more easily)




Even though the individual animal requirements for Ingredient  stored items are low, equivalent storage is recommended as later crafts use many of the Magic Spells, Riding Halters, Heart Medallions and Adoption Papers and you will want capacity to harvest and store those every time you look inside the building.


Minimum storage is the lowest expansion that can hold sufficient parts for that animal.

If you are looking to complete this feature in the least amount of time possible, you will want to begin making the 10 hour ingredients when you first get the feature and look ahead to the 6th animal and begin making the 6 hour plus ingredients by animal #3 and keeping them on hand.

There are two ways to expand your storage units. One, by crafting the parts in the Craftshop (See the Craft Shop Guide for recipes.) The second way is to make one or two animals over and over (Golden Winged Cub is quickest and easiest) to get the 2 random expansion parts granted by each animal upon completion. As the parts are random, the latter method may be time consuming. There is a difference with the Fountain as opposed to all prior buildings, except the Hideaway , though. All parts are weighted at same item chance instead of some at 50% and some at 10% so it may be easier than usual.

Note: upon completion of the 5th animal, the game will automatically increase your Play Area  recipe storage to 10 (they've also coded animal 5 to require 7 items in the play area -essentially coding a "free" expansion that no one can get, because you can not unlock it without previously expanding to that level) and your Home Pen  ingredient storage to 15 and on completion of the 10th animal, the game will automatically increase your Play Area recipe storage to 15 and your Home Pen ingredient storage to 20. If you are at or past these capacities when you complete these animals, you will not receive an expansion.


There are two strategies you can follow to complete the animals in the Fountain. One is careful management of resources, which will allow you to complete them with lowest expansion capacity possible. This way may take a bit longer as you cannot store many items ahead.
The other is making parts ahead and squirrelling them away for when needed. That will allow you to complete the feature faster as you will complete more parts within same wait time by utilizing all machines at once. It does require more crafting and expanding. Which you opt for is up to you.
If you opt for the crafting method it is wise to focus on mastering the required crops first, as you will need a total of 256 bushels to make all of the parts for one expansion on either side. For tips on mastering the crops faster, check the Beat Emerald Valley Strategy Guide.


The following chart shows which parts by animal  are the ones that take the longest time to craft. This includes anything that it’s own craft time, plus craft times of ingredients required for the recipe is 6 hours or longer. these are the ones you will want to make ahead and store before you reach that animal to save yourself the maximum amount of time as you progress. If you have additional space visit the Tin Man Fountain Complete Guide and get ahead on the 4 hour recipes as well.

  1. I am on animal 10 in the tin man fountain; I only have 10 spots in the playpen, but I need 12. There are at least 4 other of these animal places that don't have enough spots for goods to make the animals. The home place for example: I'm on the last animal, I have 25 spots, I need 26.
